Untold Story - Meera Bai | मीरा बाई

Meera broke many social norms of the time. She accepted Raidas (Ravidas), a Dalit by birth, as her guru ( Guru Miliyaa Raidasjee). It is believed that it was Raidas who had given her that statue of Krishna, all those years ago when she was a small girl. Choosing the language of the people, Meera wrote in Vrajbhasha, interspersed with Rajasthani. Around 1000 padas of Meera are available now. Around 500 more are attributed to her. Sadly, no attempt was made to preserve all that she composed. Tonight in our Shakti Series we bring you the story of the most enigmatic poetess of India.
